Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe in the power of playtesting and the value of feedback. Creativerse will be a free-to-play game at launch. By charging for Early Access, we're hoping to ensure we get feedback from people who are passionate about shaping the game's destiny, invested in its future, and excited to get access to the game before it's released.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Long before we launched, we had estimated 4 - 6 months for Early Access. However, the realities of supporting a live game while developing new features and content quickly sunk in. We now feel 8 - 12 months is closer to what we'll need.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The core game is built on three essential components: exploration, combat, and crafting. On that foundation, we'll be adding a variety of new features, systems and content over the course of Early Access. We're excited to share these with you!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with a decent amount of content, though it's certainly not bug-free. If you're experiencing an issue, your feedback will help us fix it!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We are committed to launching as a free to play game. We believe it will allow us to reach the widest audience possible. Continued development will be supported by microtransactions. However, we are making every effort to ensure that in-game purchases are not tied to the core loop of the game -- we don't want to penalize players who simply want to play for free.

As a bonus to our Early Access participants, you will receive a gift of in-game currency equal to the price of Early Access once the game officially launches!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're hoping to get as much feedback as possible. Please let us know if you have any suggestions, whether it's something you'd like to see added or changed or removed entirely. We've already added a bunch of stuff and made a number of changes to the game based on player feedback and we plan to continue listening and responding throughout Early Access.

So...send us your feedback, please! Here are the best places to do that:

Come Hunt for Keepa and Arcstones in Creativerse R6

Greetings Creatifriends!

As promised, R6 is a big update.

We're most excited for you to meet Keepa, a new mob who's found his way into your worlds (and our hearts). He's rare, though, so you'll have to figure out how to bump into him.

He's also hoarding a new type of resource -- the super shiny Arcstones! Arcstones are used in a whole slew of new craftable items, so be prepared for a lot of close encounters with the Keepa creepa if you want to deck your halls with, say, Grand Arc Lanterns.

You'll see the beginnings of a new buff system in this update. Once you've crafted and knocked back a few questionably smelly potions, you'll know what we're talking about. Try walking around the corruption layer after imbibing the mysteriously named "Corruption Resistance Potion" and see what we mean.

For you builders out there, check out the new Romanesque blocks. Finally, you can put all that limestone and bedrock to good use and build the city of your dreams. No really, please build the city of your dreams and decorate our community hub with screenshots. We love seeing that stuff!

Enjoy and as always -- let us know what you think!

P.S. We finally fixed the mouse wheel so you can scroll through your hot bar instead of having to manually punch in numbers like some kind of troglodyte.

Split Some Stacks in Creativerse R5

Greetings Creatifriends,

First of all, we admit this release is on the lighter side in terms of new features. But we promise to make up for it in R6. In fact, we're really starting to hit our stride here at Playful HQ and anticipate the next few releases will be heavier than usual, so get ready for a bunch of new toys in the sandbox.

In the meantime, there's still some neat stuff to play with this time. You can finally split stacks. Now your buddy has no excuse not to share his stash of vines. You'll also see new and improved art for the loot bag, gauntlet and bombs. And first time players will see a radar on their compass that makes finding that essential first crafting station more obvious.

Thanks again for your continued support of Creativerse! Happy building!

New Features and Content
  • Stack splitting and joining support; stack split: shift-click to pick up single items; right click still moves entire stack
  • New first-time user content: crafting station beacon
  • New loot bag art
  • New gauntlet art
  • New art for grenades / bombs

Improvements
  • Changing a world’s password forces all players to leave the world and re-enter the password
  • 'F' collects and closes stations
  • Underside of liquid surfaces now displays
  • General UI improvements

Bugfixes
  • Foggy days disable directional shadows
  • Multiblock objects now show selection cursor when pointing to top half
  • Upper and lower body animations of player now stay in sync on inventory screen
  • Fix for giant grenades / bombs being stuck to hands in multiplayer
  • Fixed the chat window spontaneously reappearing issue
  • Stability and memory usage improvements

Known Issues
  • The quickbar will often vanish when using teleporters or the touchstone. It will come back if you hit ESC for the options menu or enter your inventory.
  • Stack-splitting and joining is unavailable on the processor and forge screens - it only works on inventory / storage screens (for now).

I'm really liking this game so far. Very polished and pretty with exellent music.
Lots of interesting items at build and extra recipes to find.
It has some issues (like rarely disappearing landscape and death containers being inside of blocks at times) but nothing game breakiog.

First Impressions:

It's missing some features (like the ability to delete worlds), but is fairly enjoyable otherwise. I would like to see a hunger mechanic introduced, just to add an extra layer of survival to the gameplay. The game will be free to play at launch, so my advice is to pick this up now only if A) you don't mind playing Alphas/Betas and B) you trust the developer enough to release a finished game down the line. There are plenty of "Minecraft-esque" games out there if you're patient enough to wait for this game's release (should $20 be out of your preferred price range). With that said, I'm giving it a recommend for the potential alone.

Never did Minecraft...I have 3 block crafting games at the moment and two of them are early access...Creativerse is ...truly awesome and immersive for me, I just can't seem to get enough of this game. I find myself mostly walking around the world taking in the sights as well as trying to study how things go together. Never knew so much could be done with blocks. I guess I should have gotten deeper into the leggo building back in the day with my kids. LOL...the community in this game and the developers are truly energized in the creation potential this game offers. I am looking forward to participating in the multiplayer aspect...something else I haven't done either. Mostly due to an older slower laptop that can not handle the data other community players have in their worlds. I visit but I drop to 4 fps... folks call it lag I call it Cyber Turtle Nervosa. Seriously though I highly recommend this game.

This game has gone through many changes since it first hit the Steam store. I personally have grown with it and have had many ups and downs with...

However, The one thing keeping me coming back is the developers with communication on all fronts starting with updates, to feedback, to concerns, to suggestions. ALL are answered in one form or another and all are taken into consideration.

THIS is why I will continue to play and support PLAYFUL!!!

Thank you,
Evisikar

So far I am in love with this game!
The whole team is on the ball and constantly responding to the community, which can be seen from the forums here on steam and on their twitter.
The game looks gorgeous! The mechanics are constantly evolving! So alot of the complaints about timers and pay to play concepts have been scrapped. Not only have they made away with the pay to speed up timers, they've sped up the timer! WUT?! How are they going to make money in the future? Who knows hopefully sexy texture packs and new blocks and stuff.
Think of this as an early minecraft with shaders, random loot drops, random loot chests, and better fight mechanics.
CONS: Some timers can be lenghty. Some items (swords/armors) deplete pretty quickly. Beyond that, compared to wait times on something like "Kill Shot"where you have to wait forever for something to "arrive" this is not that far off. BUT! They don't let you respawn a limited amount of times. So yeah. Buy it, Try it out & Support it, or wait until it's Free 2 Play and see what it's all about. Either way you won't be disappointed!

unless you want to pay $20 for a game that will one day be free to play, i suggest waiting until the full release... but if you want something similar to minecraft, but with a lot more combat content, a different style of crafting, and a reason to actually be afraid to go out at night (at least, in the beginning while you build up materials for better equipment), and you want to help pay for its development, it's worth looking in to. Make sure you look up basic gameplay on youtube first, as there is no tutorial so far.

Overall rating, 7/10 for current early release status. would be around an 8.5 with a tutorial included in the game

This game rocks. The multiplayer experience, beautiful graphics, and seamless gameplaay are what makes this game so enjoyable. Building cool stuff and slaying those midnight baddies is really fun. The only question is...where did all my spare time go?

Early Access Review
One of the best early access games I have played. I will update my review as I play more. A lot of the things I mention in my "like to see" list may already be in the game I just haven't gotten to them yet. If this game continues on the path that it is then it will easily out do MineCraft. Of course there are a few bugs and not a lot of content due to it being early access.

Some things I would like to see in the future would be, Interactive NPC, transportation(wings,jet packs,etc) magic/spells, ranged weapons, Enchanting, more in depth alchemy such as poison to apply to weapons etc, more things to craft like in MineCraft (Mining carts/tracks, huge amounts of cosmetic housing items), maybe the chance to unlock better weapons by defeating certain bosses.

One thing I did not like, I built a "staircase" one block at a time out of the mud,stone,etc as my mining shaft and instead of just being able to run back up my "stairs" I had to jump over and over which was very annoying. I wish you could build your house and furniture out of mushroom somehow like in Terraria. Over all though I love this game and my dream would for it to be a combination of Terraria and MineCraft lol. Sorry to compare it to other games but that will happen because it is in the same genre.

Ok, not sure what everyone else is saying, not much for reading forums....this game is fairly good...a couple of problems, which I see with all games offered by steam, is that it is dependent on the internet to run the game....so if you guys could possibly make it to where you can play the game offline, then most likely the person or persons who buy the game won't have so many issues running it.
On a positive note, the game runs fine for me. I played around with some of the settings that are offered and figured out what works for my gaming rig. The graphics are amazing, the game play is challenging, and overall, I would recommend anyone who likes sandbox games to try it out for themselves.

As of this moment I see the potential to be the evolution of minecraft. I mean this game could be fun and fantastic co op. They had to be greedy and ruin it with a cash shop though. You literally have to wait on extractors and things to mine and build 5 minutes and up. You can of course rush things with their in game mojo points. When you run out though, despite paying 20 bucks for the game. It's either pay to mine or wait forever. Oh well, was fun while the stuff lasted onward to better games.
